This comic gem tell the fictitious story of Madame Pompadour, mistress of King Louis the XV, and her love affair with a dashing nobleman.  Add a rebellious poet, a jilted wife, two bumbling policemen and the King himself, and the pair are soon caught up in a royal mess that only the clever Madame Pompadour can unravel. Don’t miss the Chicago premiere of one of the greatest operettas ever written!
